Thule AeroBlade Flush Mount Ski Rack Hardware
Thule's new ski racks, the Thule 92724, 92725, and 92726 now come equipped with the new SpeedLink Hardware. The SpeedLink hardware is easy to install, lockable with Thule's One Key System (included), and fits a broad range of crossbars, including factory installed crossbars, Whispbar Racks and the new Thule AeroBlade Crossbars.
What we have found is that the SpeedLink hardware - while functionally excellent - looks a bit chunky and awkward. Of course this is only our opinion, but when mounting to slotted crossbars like the Thule AeroBlade, Rapid Aero, and Whispbar crossbars, we think the install could look and function a little better. That is why we developed an original hardware kit that allows you to flush mount the ski rack to the crossbar by utilizing the T-channel on top of the bar.
This hardware works perfectly for the following Thule Ski Racks:
- Thule 92724
- Thule 92725
- Thule 92726
- Thule 724
- Thule 725
- Thule 91725 (requires drilling out old rivits)
- Thule 91724 (requires drilling out old rivits)
Note: Brand New Thule 92725 come with flush mount hardware included
This hardware works perfectly for the following Crossbar Styles:
- Thule AeroBlades
- Thule Rapid Aero Load Bars
- Whispbar Flush & Through Bars
- Thule 422XT Xporter Rack
- Thule 500XT Xporter Rack
- T-Channel, OEM Crossbars

If you're not sure if this hardware kit will work with your ski rack or your rack system, please contact the shop and we'll help you make a good decision.
This hardware modification is not recommended for use with the Thule 92726, Thule 91726 or 726 because the natural curve present in the Thule AeroBlade Crossbars and Whispbar Racks will bind the slide-out mechanism. However, if mounting to Thule Xporter crossbars, or other OEM installed racks that have level crossbars, you will find adequate compatibility.
